Ambulance Drone

Each year nearly a million people in Europe suffer from a cardiac arrest. A mere 8% survives due to slow response times of emergency services. This ambulance-drone, developed by Delft University in the Netherlands, is capable of saving lives with an integrated defibrillator.

The goal is to improve existing emergency infrastructure with a network of drones. This new type of drone reaches its destination within 1 minute, which increases chance of survival from 8% to 80%.
